Not knowing how to speak Japanese does not stop you from singing along to the theme songs. Aggressively.
So I sat through a Japanese classic literature class…
It’s like kanji that means kanji
I DONT EVEN KNOW KANJI IN THE FORAT PLACE
I’ve been in Japan for a few days and my host brother JUST told me that you can turn on the jets in the bath…
What is WRONG with this boy?!
I FORGOT TO LET YOU ALL KNOW!!!
I landed in japan 2 days ago! It has been quite busy, but I’m definitely going to make this year be the best!
Yesterday it was my birthday, so my host family bought me gifts and a fantastic cake!
My whole family is helping me with Japanese, as well as helping me answer any questions. They’re very easy to talk to!
I’m still not used to the time zones, so I’m still a bit tired. Hopefully that will go away soon!
I start school tomorrow, and I am just SO EXCITED!!! But really scared….
Well, tomorrow is the day that I leave the US and fly to Japan! Words cannot describe how I’m feeling, but I do know that this will be an experience of a lifetime. I am so excited to see what this year brings!
Guys I leave in less than 6 hours, I AM SO STOKED! AND I CANNOT WAIT!!!
The Pew Research Center also asked about the police response to the protests. Only a third of whites think the police went too far in the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting.
Only a third think armored vehicles rolling down the streets of Ferguson is going too far.
Only a third think police dressed in camouflage (for some inexplicable reason) waving military-grade assault weapons at unarmed civilians is going too far.
Only a third think lobbing tear gas and stun grenades at civilians—the very citizens they’re supposed to protect—is going too far.
Only a third think threatening reporters and calling protestors “f*****g animals” is going too far.
Only a third think treating black civilians like enemy combatants is going too far.
We have a problem. And the problem is that we won’t even accept that there’s a problem.
